AA Thought for the Day
August 4, 2020
To Give and Receive
Joy at our release from a lifetime of frustration knew no bounds.
Father feels he has struck something better than gold. For a time
he may try to hug the new treasure to himself. He may not see
at once that he has barely scratched a limitless lode which will
pay dividends only if he mines it for the rest of his life and insists
on giving away the entire product.
- Alcoholics Anonymous, (The Family Afterward) pp. 128 - 129
Thought to Ponder
In AA, we discover that it is impossible to give
without receiving, or receive without giving.
